So, let's break this down then, shall we?Slight warning :: Possible feels ahead?
Age 5 ::Shawn is still living with his birth mother at this point.
He's extremely clingy to her, but doesn't quite have that super shy personality we all know and love him for just yet.
Still a very happy, mama's boy, and can't imagine life without her.Age 13 ::Mother has died five years ago (when he was eight for those that struggle with math, like myself) and has been adopted into a more permanent, stable family with his older step brother, Liam.
Shawn is just now getting into high school and is extremely shy and awkward.
Parents are VERY strict with him and make sure he's at the top of his class with absolutely perfect scores.
He has no friends at this point besides Liam, who he just thinks is strange.
He has no outside life and is either at school or at home 24/7.
He's a very lonely, quiet child that doesn't speak much, barely smiles, and keeps to himself as much as possible at school.
Carries around his mother's scarf with him to keep her close.Age 17 ::Shawn has finally met his first friend that his parents approve of, Alumont (who he later hooks up with) and is now considerably happier.
While around Alumont, he starts working on his social anxiety problems and very slowly starts to make new friends.
Still very shy, but speaks up a bit more when Alumont is around.
No longer wears his mother's scarf, as he thinks it brings up too much of the past, and that he shouldn't be upset when he's around his new boyfriend.
Smiles and laughs honestly and more frequently than he used to.
Just a very happy teenager who's head over heels in love.Age 20 ((Current Age)) ::With Alumont gone (died the same year they met right as the winter season started), Shawn is now even more withdrawn than he was when he lost his mother.
He will sort of speak to people, but only when spoken to first, and will hardly speak more than a few sentences before going quiet.
Honest smiles and laughs are exceedingly rare.
Wears the scarf Alumont gave to him for their monthaversary. Never takes it off unless it needs to be cleaned (which he does sparingly).
Has learned to escape to music and listens to it every moment he can.
Keeps to a strict schedule to avoid as many people as possible, which is go to work, write at the park with his music on, and go home. The only contacts he has on his phone are his parents and Liam.
Doesn't make deep connections with people anymore, afraid that he'd lose them (and be the one responsible for it).
Doesn't reach out to people on his own, even though he craves friends and human contact. He's simply too scared and self conscious that he'd mess something up.
Often has crying fits when he's at home by himself and thinking too much.
Pretty much clings to Liam every time he's over or calls him, which is about once to twice a week (For calling. Visiting is once a month) since he's the only sort of contact he has anymore, besides the rare call from his parents.
QuQ And this is a quick summary of my baby through the years.
TT u TT Hope this was a little insightful for you on who Shawn is ((Though his history in his application gives a bit more description))
Life is never easy for any of my OCs it seems. >_>; Except Jeremiah... <_< but he's just a lazy dumbass that can sing. =u=; //slappedShawn belongs to me and resides in the lovely group
